On Tuesday only for Rimu hub we got to celebrate matariki with doing workshops. The workshops were carving, Mural art, Cooking, weaving,  lanterns. kite making and rock art. I went to do carving in the morning and weaving in the afternoon. After lunch Karamu kindly came and presented us things about matariki.

Mural art is just painting a big poster and this year its going up by the junior toilets. Cooking was fish pie in a cup with kumara chips and fried Maori bread. Weaving with `flax (Harekeke) they made  a flower and a headband. The  head band was made for kapahaka performance. Kite making was with toi toi and flax (Harekeke). Rock making was with Mrs Coombs.

Maori hands

When I walked in the door of room 6 and 7 i was feeling so excited because it was Maori hand games. The people that were teaching us were Lucky, Jordan, Tamihana, Tu were teaching us Kururus (knuckle bones) wai (strings) Hei tama tu tama ( arm hand games) E hipi toi toi (Thumb games ) .
When we walked in they talked us what we were going to do and gave us a number. I started as a 1 and did the kururu's and learn't the 4 games. The games were called Kurupu, Kurupukarua,  it was hard and the end but easier at the start. Then I left to go to wai. We had the challenges and I won. Thank you for teaching us.

Here are the photos and a video. Hope you enjoy.

Quick Write

One day at 5 pm i was stuck in a dairy with the shop owners gone. I thought about eating the 
lollies but that is rude.

Next thing I know I was behind the counter starting to eat the lollies
For a minute I thought it was rude but its fun. I made
my way through 1/2 of the shop i have 
a sore tummy but

OH  NO i cried there was a van with bananas and WHAT monkeys. 
They walked in I tried to hide. But unfortunately the found me.  

"Hey you there :" They yelled What are you doing stealing my lollies. 
I didn't   know what to say so I mumbled. 
I was making a fool of myself. I just couldn't believe monkeys were the owners. 

They called me a thief and threw me into the banana van I was so scared. I was in there for a 
long time . Because I was in there for a long time I started to eat the bananas 

The next morning well it felt like the next morning I was in

Banana jail is when your locked up with bananas every where and your in the pile and 
you can not move.
